New Hot Air Balloon Altitude Record

Indian industrialist and aviator Vijaypat Singhania has apparently broken the world hot air balloon altitude record, with a flight that took him 69,852 feet above Mumbai, India. The record is subject to verification by aeronautical groups who will examine instrumentation sealed within the balloon's capsule.

Funnymoney quote: "This goes to show to the world that we are not bullock cart drivers."
